Celebrating Boxing Day

Standard

It was a lovely day, my husband and I got to spend some time together just the two of us, and went for a coffee and looked in some shops. I bought a new diary to go with my collection this year from TK Maxx it was £9.99.

I will do a video sharing my planners soon on my Filofax and Planner page on Carrierealworld.com 

My son got to spend some time with his cousins and received as a gift from my mum and step dad, a new bike.

My son and his cousin Gracie got to play on their new bikes, as she received one too, in the playground of my step dad’s school.

We had dinner, of roast beef, baked potatoes, coleslaw and Yorkshire puddings and then dessert the children had ice cream, whilst the adults had cheese cake.

We got to open some more gifts, at which I received a new watch and a bracelet, which I will post some pictures of, and my husband was given a new fleece type jumper.

It has been a good Christmas and then we are off to Southampton for the new years, so I will post about this soon.

Many thanks for reading,

Chessington Garden Centre Santa’s Grotto

Image

This week we took my son to the Santa’s Grotto, at the Chessington Garden Centre. You do have to book way ahead of time as it tends to sell out rather quickly, but was really lovely to go.

Chessington Garden centre is on the Leatherhead road about two minutes away from Chessington World of Adventures.

We had a bite to eat in the cafe and which came to about £16 but not bad for 3 of us as my son had something to eat aswell, and you can get some lovely Christmas gifts there too.

We did the fantastic Christmas Wonderland experience, which is sold out this year, but worth planning on going to as of next year. You get to meet the creations team and make a gift for father Christmas, and then you follow it around to see the fantastic wonderland and get to see some familiar characters from those famous films and books.

Then at the end you get to meet the man himself, Father Christmas.

Many thanks for reading,

Getting by

Standard

Please check out my new blog on my website:

I have started to Home Educate Henry, my son, to help get him ready for when he starts school in September.

For me it is been a bit of struggle as I lost my job just before Christmas, but getting by the best I can. I always get so apprehensive on Wednesdays and Fridays because I have to get up at 6:30am to get Henry at Nursery for 7:30am.

I have been watching Call The Midwife and The Voice, which I am loving at the moment. I can’t get into Dancing on Ice, I watch my favourite which is Cheryl Baker than turn onto something else.

I am having a change around at home at the moment changing our living room around, and taking a piece of furniture from downstairs to upstairs, I will take some photos and post on my  Seasonal Clear up page, on my main site, Carriesrealworld.com 

Once it is all complete and post them tomorrow or over the weekend.

My hubby and I’s plan of watching a film in the evenings, didn’t last long we kept getting so tired and then stopping the film halfway through.

Anyway gonna get on now and have some lunch soon, I will post again next week.

Many thanks for reading,
